About this book
Spectacular photos begin with your Sony Alpha and this book. With its Alpha A300 and A350 cameras, Sony has blurred the distinction between introductory and advanced dSLRs. With the expert advice in this book, you’ll learn to use every menu and control perfectly and gain insight into setting up and capturing shots that will amaze you.  Reach beyond the automatic settings and take control of exposure, shutter speed, white balance, and every creative element that makes photography an art. Part I explores using your Sony Alpha A300 or A350 straight out of the box. Starting with an in depth look at the Sony Quick AF Live View System, this part of the book also explores all the external controls, explaining the purpose and function of each button, dial, and switch. Understanding your camera’s menu system is crucial to getting great results with the A300 or the A350, and of course the book will also teach you how to maneuver through all of your camera’s menus. You’ll not only learn how to adjust each setting, but when and why you should make each adjustment. Chapter 3 gives a thorough explanation of basic photography fundamentals, without overwhelming jargon and technical terms. If you are a new photographer you will gain an appreciation of aperture, shutter speed, exposure, ISO and white balance. If you are an experienced photographer you’ll find helpful tips and tricks for adjusting each of these key settings. Interchangeable lenses are one of a dSLR's major strengths, and that is true of both the A300 and A350. With so many lens options, choosing auxiliary lenses for the A300 series can become overwhelming. Chapter 4 helps you eliminate the mystery about which lenses to buy and gives you a full explanation of what to look for when evaluating a new lens. With information on wide-angle, normal, telephoto, and macro lenses, this chapter discusses the full Sony lens lineup and goes on to demystify the option of using Minolta lenses on the Sony Alpha. Understanding light and light modifiers, such as diffusers and reflectors, is absolutely essential to getting great results from a dSLR. In chapter 5, you'll find a complete discussion of lighting basics, including the differences between continuous lighting and electronic flash. The full array of light modifiers is outlined, and the chapter goes on to explain the strengths and weaknesses of the proprietary Sony/Minolta hot shoe design. Naturally, there is also a discussion of which flash units work with the A300 series. Chapter 6 consists of a series of exercises designed to enhance your skills when shooting in a wide variety of photographic situations, including everything from macro photography and black and white to high dynamic range, portrait, and travel photography. Each topic is accompanied by numerous full color examples. DSLR photography entails far more than just the camera and lens. Once you fill your memory card with great images, you will need to download, catalog, store and edit those images. Chapter 7 takes you through a quick, but informative tour of the software and hardware options available to simplify your digital workflow. You will be exposed to the differences between RAW and JPEG images and you'll receive a thorough overview of your RAW processing options. You also learn about sharpening and noise reduction software, as well as the best editing applications.

About this book
Meet the A300 and A350—the two newest cameras in Sony’s beginner-friendly “A” series. They’re alike except for sensor resolution (the 350 has the highest available in any consumer model), and are perfect for anyone ready to move up from point-and-shoot cameras. That’s because they actually allow photographers to view the scene in front of them on the LCD monitor prior to shooting. Owners will look to this guide to find out how to use the Live Preview with AF and exposure control; adjustable variable angle LCD monitor that flips out and twists; and Super SteadyShot(R) image stabilization that vastly reduces blur.

I am using a quantaray QAF 6600 Zoom bounce flash. Initially it work well with about 10 test shots on day. Day 2 I took it to school to test in my gym class because of poor lighting conditions when taking pictures. Again it work find for about ten test shots. A week later I tried to take pictures and it wouldn't activate the off camera flash like on previous occasions. Battery was DOA so I had to replace them, no manual to troubleshoot the problem.I would love to leave an exceptional rating because I do think itsa good product.

    Great Flash - Car Charger and Trigger set is "NOT" included.

This review is from: NEEWER® TT850 *LI-ION BATTERY* Flash Speedlite With FT-16S Wireless Flash Trigger And LI-ION BATTERY Car Charger For Canon, Nikon, Sony, Pentax, Olympus and all other SLR DSLR CAMERAS Professional Photography (Electronics) I ordered this item 2 days ago, with Amazon Prime - The item arrived quickly and the flash unit itself is great - Except, the package does not have all the items listed - Like other reviewers mentioned, the shipment was missing the Trigger/Receiver set and the Car Charger. This item was listed as "Sold by Standbyon - Fulfilled by Amazon".I promptly connected with Amazon via Chat and within 5 mins after explaining the problem, I was refunded the cost of the Trigger/Receiver set and the mobile charger, the price of which was determined by looking at those items being sold as stand alone by the same seller on Amazon.One other note - the picture and listing on the box detailed only the items that were packaged in that box - so either the wrong kit was sent, or the seller was supposed to include the missing items as extras to the kit, which was conveniently omitted. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 28, 2014

This review is from: NEEWER® TT850 *LI-ION BATTERY* Flash Speedlite With FT-16S Wireless Flash Trigger And LI-ION BATTERY Car Charger For Canon, Nikon, Sony, Pentax, Olympus and all other SLR DSLR CAMERAS Professional Photography (Electronics) This is a great flash--I got two of them but I never got the "FT-16S Wireless Flash Trigger systems" or the "Battery Chargers with cable" for each of the flashes from New Harbor, which is a $100.00 in value all together (not including the flashes). Not only that, but they forgot to put the car charger with the item, which they did reimburse me for. Also, New Harbor took a long time to get my order shipped--another order from Hong Kong I had took only 5 days to get to me. I ordered two of this listing on Jan 13th and got the flashes Jan 31st (from NJ to Seattle WA). THAT slow! Really, this is pathetic, New Harbor. Don't sell something as a kit only to ship half of the product I ordered. Thanks for taking my $100.00!!

    Solves Key/Fill Lighting Synchronization Problem For All Strobes

    UPDATE June 2, 2014: One of the triggers has permanently failed. The LED illuminates in response to a radio signal from the transmitter, but the flash does not fire.

I purchased this from a Fulfilled By Amazon supplier, so getting a refund is no problem.

    0 5/5 Josh - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Neewer 16 Channel Wireless Remote FM Flash Speedlite Radio Trigger with 2.5mm PC Receiver for Flash Units with Universal Hot Shoe (Electronics) This was exactly what i was looking for. i have 2 canon speedlite 430s and wanted to use them as portable light sources with my canon 50D. Now i can set up my external flashes on tripods and use them in any lighting condition as a fill. This is particularly helpful on very bright days with harsh light and drastic shadowing on your subject. I was skeptical that these would work at all because they're so cheap but they work like a charm. they're light but feel fairly solid. they're easy to use, simply match up the 4-digit code on both trigger and receiver and bam, you've got a wireless flash. They have good reach, I tested them at 20+ yards and they fired perfectly. The only negative I've noticed was that they do fit on my speedlites very tight but they're manageable. Dont be dissuaded by the low price tag. These work perfect. There is absolutely no need to pay more. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 26, 2013

    The Best Radio Trigger for the Sony Alpha Camera...

TTL works absolutely great, TTL HSS works absolutely great, Manual works absolutely great as well as Manual HSS.

    Works flawlessly as advertised, could use a few design improvements

    I bought a transmitter and 3 triggers and use them for both portrait lighting and indoor sports. They work great, I've been using them for 6 months now and never had any sync issues or misfires. They do have very long range, which doesn't matter much for studio work but it's nice when I'm shooting sports and have flashes spread out around a venue.They also work smoothly with high speed sync, and mixing TTL and manual is nice. Basically they do everything phottix claims they do and are very reliable.I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because there are a few things that could make it better in my eyes:-Needs more channels. They only have 4 channels, which doesn't matter to me the vast majority of the time, but at large events with lots of photogs this might be an issue.-Changing power levels and modes through the LCD menu system works fine, but it can be a little slow.
